TOWIE fans were left reeling last week following Amber Turner’s announcement that she and boyfriend Dan Edgar have split after six years together – and OK! can finally reveal the real reason behind her bombshell decision.
A source close to reality star Amber, 29, claims that rumours of infidelity tipped her over the edge, leading her to realise she and Dan are “not on the same page” with what they want from a partner.
“She’s keen to settle down and start a family, but there have been rumours about him behaving inappropriately in the past, and deep down, Amber couldn’t trust him,” they tell OK! .
Our source also explains that Amber had become tired of making excuses for Dan’s behaviour and wants a man who will make her reputation a priority.
They add, “She won’t start a family with someone she thinks is less mature than her.”
The pair have been an item since 2017 but have had a rocky relationship, with allegations of Dan being unfaithful.
They temporarily brought an end to their romance in both 2018 and 2019. During the latter break Dan had a short-term fling with TOWIE pal Chloe Sims before he and Amber made amends.
But bigger cracks in their relationship began to show last year, after their co-star Ella Rae Wise accused former electrician Dan of acting “inappropriately” towards her in a nightclub.
She told press, “Dan needs to keep his hands to himself, really. He shouldn’t touch up other girls when he has a girlfriend. With his track record I don’t know how she can allow her man to go out.”
Earlier this year, the couple were also rocked by speculation that Dan, 32, was refusing to commit to Amber.
Following their move into their “dream” Essex mansion together with their dog, Oliver, in December, Dan told on-screen pals Chloe Meadows and Courtney Green that he was finally ready to put more effort into their relationship.
“I just felt like I needed to make some changes. Everything I was doing in life was a bit half-hearted. I’ve upped it,” he insisted. Amber agreed, “I think now we’ve moved, that’s been such a nice step for us and it tides me over for a while.”
However, the good times appear to have been short-lived and the pair have divided once again.
“Bridges between them were finally burnt after Dan was caught out again for inappropriate behaviour and Amber couldn’t allow them to reconcile again,” our source claims.
“She couldn’t see a future with him without trust. She wants to be with someone who wants the same thing as she does.”
Another source close to the former couple has told OK! that Amber is already turning her attention to finding The One, adding, “They split up because Dan hasn’t proposed to her and Amber is sick of it. She’s made it clear she wants commitment and to settle down.”
Amber last week confirmed their break-up on Instagram, just before jetting off to the UAE to celebrate her mum Suzanne’s 60th birthday.
She told followers, “I wasn’t going to post anything but due to speculation and questions I feel like I need to. Yes me and Dan have split. I honestly wish him the best for the future.”
Though Dan is yet to make an official comment on their decision to part ways, it was he who set rumours swirling about the status of their relationship after unfollowing his now-ex on social media.
Dan also removed all traces of Amber from his Instagram grid, deleting their hundreds of photos together.
